Ayantika (Annie) Ghosh, Licensing Analyst, Office of Technology Commercialization (OTC) primarily involved with Purdue University Life Science technologies. In this role, Annie works towards initial identification and engagement with external stakeholders such as potential licensees, venture capitalists and entrepreneurs, conducts technology and market opportunity assessments for Purdue-developed technologies and assists with licensing agreements and monitors contract compliances.

Annie’s academic background includes a MS in Bio-Chemistry & PhD in Cell Biology from India and Postdoctoral research experience at the University of Pittsburgh (Pitt). As a scientist, at Pitt she has led several projects that ranged from studying inflammatory pathways involved in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and intra-hepatic cholestatic diseases to stem-cell based regenerative therapies for neuronal and end-stage liver diseases.

  • If you were granted an interview with Albert Einstein, what would be your first question for him?  Are you aware of the memes that go around in your name on social media platforms? Or do you even know what memes are or what is social media?
  • Other than safety and fuel efficiency, what is one aspect that you will not compromise on when searching for a new car?  Cargo space!
  • If you could go back in time to have dinner with one person, who would that be?  I would have to go 9-10 years back to have dinner with Steve Jobs. I know I will be intimidated and probably won’t be able to enjoy my dinner too, but I would not miss out on the opportunity to ask him how to be a rebel and how to fit in as the square peg in the round hole and still manage to score the points!
  • If someone promised you enough money to remodel/redecorate one room of your house, which room would that be?   As a doting mother, I would probably remodel/redecorate my kid’s room. As per her wish, I would like to get a 2000 Gallon in-wall aquarium for her bedroom. Oh wait, I would need a whole new house to accommodate that big fish tank!
